Access to seat
LAX-PPT. You don't have many airline options flying in/out of Tahiti, so Air Tahiti Nui is kind of the
only way to go. That being said, I'm not sure who designed the seats in Moana Economy Class, but I
have no idea what they were thinking with the headrest. The seats are as expected in economy class -
not much leg room, narrow, worn and used seats. I'm your average 5'5 female and felt the space was
adequate enough, although man spreaders definitely make the space more cramped. My biggest gripe is
the headrest which can move up or down, but for the most part feels like someone is shoving your head
forward into the most uncomfortable position in the world. There's just no way to get comfortable.
For an 8 hour flight from LAX it makes sleeping difficult, even if the seat is all the way reclined.
The best you can do is sleep with your head tilted forward and arms crossed over your chest. Most
positive comment would be the IFE which had a number of on demand movies/shows which was easy to use.
Nice big, crisp touch screen. Food wasn't the greatest but they feed you twice on each leg of the
trip. FA's friendly enough; French and English.
